Last week, I received several good guesses attempting to answer last week's #ThrowbackThursday. Someone guessed Jefferson County (Louisville), while another guessed Lincoln County (Stanford). It was, however Michael Chambers who was the first to accurately identify last week's #TBT photograph of the Clark County Courthouse in Winchester.

Clocktower of the
Clark Co. Courthouse
The magnificent edifice of the Clark County Courthouse in downtown Winchester was completed in 1855 the cost about $40,000. The iconic Clocktower was added in 1889, while a rear addition was built in 1938.

Last week's photo was taken in 1939 after the completion of that rear addition. It is contained in the Goodman-Paxton Photographic Collection at the University of Kentucky.

Be sure to check out Nate's notes from the KY120 project on the "stellar" Clark County Courthouse.
